Steak, lobsters, prawns, oysters and cold beer … what more could anyone want after a hot summer’s day in the South Burnett?
This is the winning formula that has made the annual Reef’n’Beef Extravaganza at the Ironpot Farmers Hall such a winning formula for Team Ironpot.
The event was started in 2009 as a fundraiser for local community organisations and has always been well-supported.
It’s popular with locals from the Kumbia, Bell, Benair, Burrandowan and Ironpot areas … but its fame has gradually spread and some diners now travel great distances to attend.
The hall becomes a little oasis of light surrounded by large marquees to cater for the guests.
This year’s event attracted 220 people, the limit set to make life a bit easier for organisers.
They dined on fresh seafood and sizzling steaks and enjoyed the cool breezes wafting across the farmland.
Live music was supplied by “Random Keys” – the duo used to be Kingaroy residents but are now based in the Sunshine Coast and Brisbane.
